The Best Banana Nut Bread

I truly love baking and I don’t do it often enough, so I had to get my bake on stat, so today I am sharing  “The Best Banana Nut Bread!”

I do tend to do a lot more baking around the fall, I mean’ its the perfect time of year to do it…  I know its not fall yet, but I am SURE eager for that crisp cool air to get here. I love the scent of a yummy loaf of bread baking in the oven. Its warm, cozy, and so inviting. I really think of my grandmother and picture her in her sweet apron with her sweet disposition and her super sweet giggle. She would giggle and get a kick out of her grand kids excitement, when she new they all could hardly dig into one of her warm tasty “right out of the oven!” treats. (I could just hear her sweet sound now, miss her!)

Baking brings my own children around, they  love to pull up their chairs to the bar and watch mom assemble and work her magic. I am glad to make those memories with them and totally let them enjoy a beater, or a spoon full of whatever it is I am making too.
So lets move on to the recipe shall we…

    I’ve had this in the oven for over an hour. 55 min at 325 wasn’t nearly enough time. When I tested it after 55, it was still raw in the center…. Smells amazing though!

    • Hey Jennifer, I hope it turns out for you, I think depending on were you live we are in hot s. utah and your oven the bread may need more or less time, so checking it is great. Thanks, jen
